Re: americane xpress SkyMiles

I'm not sure what score you need for Blue but the people on this board say that it is not hard to do once you have been approved for the SkyMiles card.  Yes you can apply for more than one card.

Re: americane xpress SkyMiles

My Delta Gold Sky Miles came in the mail yesterday (woo hoo!) and I was able to convert it to Blue Cash. He said it was a soft pull. I didn't ask for a CLI - but went online later to apply for CLEAR. Clearly I had too much wine, because I think you need scores in the 700s. It came back - "we'll let you know"...

So I called AMEX today about something else and she said she had approval for the CLEAR card that I applied for - would I like her to process it. Heck yeah!! Turns out it was for 5k !!! My Delta is for 2k !
Both are great cards. I'm so happy. My EX yesterday was 653 and my EQ is 661 - so I guess other things play a part in the approvals.

I'm just so happy. Congrats on your card !!!

Re: americane xpress SkyMiles

Montana - Do you have other Amex cards and what are your scores? That limit seems low yet, my very own bank of 15 yrs has only given me a new shiny SECURED 500 CL card. Ugh.... when I have so much other unsecured credit. But al of this happened after I applied with them, when my score was about 20 points lower... anyways, they'll graduate that card in time.

Montana,I've read your posts...but can't recall. Don't you have the Dr. degree ? Anyways, I think I read a bunch of great news from you recently.. yes?

I am not a Dr. I run an investment firm. However with my income i have credit cards that are just too low in credit limit. Could it be because i purchased our home in san francisco with a check rather then applying for mortgage? i don't know but I think $500 is about what i would spend for an hour of exotic dancer in my office. lol
I do not have any other AMEX cards, however i am AU on gold amex at my firm.
Experian reports me as having a credit only for the last 6 month and that's where BOA AMEX pulls from. They said that they looked at all 3 at the time but it' not true. i just checked at truecredit.com Anyway, I think i am going to take my and my family's CD's to another bank. maybe wamu, who gave me $2,500 credit card on the spot at the time of opening a new account. ( I never banked at wamu before ) 
 
Good luck all.

UPDATE :
I called the BOFA today ( they ran an inquiry this morning on me with TU  - my best scroe of all 3 ) and they upped the limit on my BOFA AMEX Rewards to  a $1,000. So I guess it's been worth the phone calls I made to BOFA.
Thanks to all who reads and replies to my posts.
 
I also got APPROVED for $2,000 limit AMEX GOLD DELTA today.
 
They said at BOFA that it's their own money they put up for the limit and not the AMEX. Hence the tight lending standards.
